This attractive, small map shows the tip of South America with Tierra del Feugo and Le Maire Strait. The topography is described graphically with small mountains and trees, with just a few larger towns noted. The title is enclosed in a simple cartouche. Engraved by Antoine de Winter.
Fine, sharp impression with faint damp stains at paper edges, well away from map.
